CHRONO TRIGGER - Tribute by Dice9633 CHRONO TRIGGER - Tribute by Dice9633
Yay!

So, anyways. A tribute piece to what can be argued as one of the best RPGs of all time, and a personal love, Chrono Trigger. And significantly different in style and taste from my CC image ( [link] ).

I kind of went for a cartooney-anime style; and fitted a planet in the background since nothing else seem to have fit. A few more remarks...

- Chrono's pose took the longest to settle on (still nothing special in the end...)
- Marle was the easiest to draw (but her bow was the hardest...I actually don't think the style of crossbow I drew exists or can exist...)
- Lucca was the funnest to draw
- Frog was TOUGH. Can't say I draw froggies all the time, so he was an interesting challenge.
- Robo is missing details... but who cares, he was tough enough.
- Ayla was both fun and easy to draw. Her fur has details, look close!!!
- Sorry to fans; Magus got the back-row treatment, and most of it is just cape. It sort of works for his character though, yeah?
- The planet's geography is wrong... lotsa clouds! cover it up!! x)

Photoshop CS2 only
24 hours for sure.

You know, their position with this background remind me of Planet Survival: www.absoluteanime.com/uninhabi…

I love the SD incarnations you've done here... I just landed a CT tattoo job (client wants Frog) and I elected to use Magus for a back-drop due to the cape as well :)

I unfortunately don't have the luxury of the freedom with the piece that you have had here, as the client wants the illustrations to be relatively spot on to the game art.... Nice work here Dice, nice work :)

A frog tattoo.... of all the video game characters I'd permanently place on my body, that one doesn't sound half bad. xD

Lucca I think came out the best—I can tell you had the most fun with her. =D

Well coloured, well shaded, paying homage to the original style while staying true to your own. I couldn't have asked for a more perfect fanart. Once again Dice, you show us what a true artist is capable of.

How kind of you! I think I'm still far off from being any sort of pro; but you give me that little extra "magic" to wanna carry on. =)
Too many CC fanarts that stick to Toriyama's style - I admire the ones that can manage to (at least) detour from it a bit.

Breaking from the mold is a good thing. And I believe this piece is an excellent example that it can be done well.

I appreciate it - and likewise, I love when people deliver something more than what they see, it's great when an artist puts their "spin" to it.

The DS version is probably the most comprehensive version if you'd be interested. Beats PSX load times....

As a fan, I think that Magus in the back is better anyway.
Very very nicely done. CT is my favorite game of all time. Even more so than FFVI. Why? Because, it was overall a very impressionable experience playing it. The character development is not as deep, but they are memorable and lovable. I liked the Double/Triple tech system. The music was great. And the desire to play it again with New Game + and get multiple endings was wonderful. Then there was the Dream Team...which including Akira Toriyama. In terms of a story, FFVI wins...but CT wins in terms of gameplay.
